sBASSdrum drum machine and synthesizer an easy to use drum machine and synth. Instantly add DJ-style filter/resonance effects, loop your performance, and keep it looping in the background to play another app’s audio over it.
Designed for novices with super-simple operation: play both drums and music with just two thumbs! Or team up with a friend and each person can play a different side of the screen. Perfect for kids or kids at heart.
What’s New in Version 1.1.1
Two huge improvements! Audiobus 2 is now supported. And … MIDI! Plug in a device and get some basic drum mapping for the bass drum, snare, hi hats, and crash. Trigger the synth side with the C4 octave. See the all-new Info menu for Help.
This version also includes numerous other fixes: more stability, remembering your loops and settings on suspend/quit, and audio engine improvements.
